Don't the Autobots have a ship of their own?

    With Wheeljack, Airachnid, the Autobot plague ship and the Decepticon's Nemesis it has been established that most Transformers utilize ships to travel through space.

    So where are Team Prime's ship? The Autobots seem to have a tactical disadvantage in that department. Especially if the Decepticons discover or know (Megatron) where their base is. Knockout already could guess the general region of it.

    They don't have one. Ratchet said they were stranded on Earth in Darkness Rising.

    Knowing Autobots, it's because they probably crashed and broke it when they arrived on Earth. Seriously they always do that crap.

    I believe that Robert and Alex said they always wanted the Decepticons to have some kind of tactical advantage over the Autobots, like the number of troops and things like that. Just to make the 'Bots look even more like heroes when they save the day.

    I guess the lack of a ship could be one of those disadvantages.

    Why do you think the Decepticon ship never lands? Cybertronians have never invented the landing gear. Their tactic is just let gravity work and fix it later. :)

    My Guess is the Ark is already on Earth like in Beast Wars minus the offline bots....we'll their could be bots.

    I speculate They never had a shipped by transwarped to Earth VIA Space bridge or snuck on the Nemesis.

    It's kind of funny though that the Space Bridge is more of an asset than any Autobot ship could have been. With the Space Bridge the Autobots have been able to go anywhere on Earth almost instantly and it's even helped them sneak on to the Decepticon ship.

    But if the Autobot had a functional ship then it would kind of make their base kind of useless since the Cons would have a harder time tracking down a ship than a land locked base.

    Plus with so few Autobots I'm guessing their ship would be rather small compared to the Decepticon ship so it wouldn't stand much of a chance in a ship to ship fight.

    ^^^^^ Good points!!

    Plus, the Autobots usually have a earth "base" which may or may not be their crashed ship.

    @ Autovolt 127 I was thinking the samething about the ark being on ark, and I do think that there is a bot on that ship.
